A farm’s life

Together with the Italian side who tweeted, he won two Series “A” titles: “Forever Goodbye Diego”
As Maradona joined Napoles, a reader said: “Italy’s poorest city has bought the most expensive players in the world.”
Even his farm success flourished. Yet Maradona has to confront him with several demons.
He was introduced to the Mafia of Camorra and Naples and fought for dependency during his visit to Italy. He failed a 1991 drug test and was banned from playing for 15 months.
He was moved from Argentina to Mexico and the United Arab Emirates after a long-standing roving manager career. In Argentina, Gimnasia has only qualified Esgrima.

But even though he failed to repeatedly bring back Messi, who was the best player in the world at the time, he was still an idol at home.
It may help that Maradona, like her country, has always been someone from the outside and someone from the outside. A man who arrogantly smells hedgehogs on the street, even when millions roll around them. Out of a simple motivation, his 10-year-old family lived in a three-room hut with only one roof overflowing with water, and learned his skills by repeatedly throwing oranges in the air with his feet.
